To quote: The pressure of the competition looms large in this week's test of communication skills as the 9 remaining gamers grapple with a Fat Princess inspired challenge involving turrets, blindfolds, and a megaphone.
With one of the most critical skills on the line this week, who's got the chops not to get chopped?
SCEA Santa Monica Studio Senior Producer, Deborah Mars, joins the panel in Week 3 as the gamers are taken way out of their comfort zones to see who is the most well rounded communicator.

160w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 33 today, which arrives this Wednesday on PSN.
To quote: Episode 33 of FirstPlay goes live on the PlayStation Network this Wednesday, and we've got plenty of gaming goodness to brighten up your dreary November days, including another chance for you to grab the exclusive Premiere Manager demo, and get your hands on our Blacklight: Tango Down theme.
We've also got an electrifying preview of mega-sequel Infamous 2, as well as reviews of Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, Shaun White's Skateboarding, The Sims 3, and The X-Factor, (that's the game, rather than a detailed analysis of Katie's questionable talents) along with our verdict on The Losers on Blu-ray.
Over in the Network Highlights section, we're serving up another helping of our Castlevania boss-guide, checking out the bestest hand-stitched LittleBigPlanet levels, chatting to industry legend Atsushi Inaba about the making of Vanquish, and reviewing the exploits of our favourite bonfire-dodger, with Sonic The Hedgehog: Episode 1.
We're also going super-hero crazy with new screenshots from Batman: Arkham City, DC Universe Online, Marvel Vs Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds, and we're uploading ourselves to the internets (no, not in that...

161w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 32 today, which hits PlayStation Store this Wednesday.
To quote: This week - along with episode 32 of FirstPlay, which hits the Store this Wednesday, we've got an exclusive demo of life-swallowingly addictive boot-room sim Premier Manager. And that's just the start - let me guide you through what else we have in store.
Right underneath 'being eaten by dogspiders' and 'accidentally wearing crotchless chaps and no underwear to work', 'being invaded by Korea in the future' is top of my list of things I hope never happens.
So imagine how displeased I was to find that's exactly the plot of US-set occupation shooter Homefront, the tasty-looking blockbuster which we have a big preview of this week.
Alongside Homefront we're also going hands on with the sneaky, stabby online multiplayer of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, rounding up a slew (that's right, a slew) of recent releases, and taking a look at the lean, mean Predators on Blu-ray.
And that's not all. In Network Highlights this week we preview another beautiful apocalypse in upcoming PSN shooter Dead Nation, chat to Tim Schafer about the making of Costume Quest, interview Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director...
162w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared details on FirstPlay Episode 31 todya, which arrives this Wednesday on PSN.
To quote: Because this week on FirstPlay we've got a positively thumping HD review of new SingStar rival Def Jam Rapstar (which, despite our best efforts, they decided not to call BlingStar).
We've also got a preview of sleek smash 'em Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, and we zoom in for an extra close-up look at what we can expect from Bioshock Infinite when it's finally released in a thousand years. Or 2012. Whatever.
And there's loads more too. We've also got tips from the DJ Hero 2 team on how to spin your opponents into the ground in the game's competitive mode, a personal take from editor-in-chief Tim Clark on his addiction to PES 2011's Become A Legend mode, plus reviews of DeathSpank: Thongs Of Virtue, Vanquish, Front: Mission Evolved and Tumble.
Last but not least we have our screenshot galleries, which is where we tend to put our weirdest jokes and where this week you'll find Twisted Metal, Alice: Madness Returns, El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron and Mindjack.
All of this can be yours for just 99p, or even less if you buy an £8.99 subscription to FirstPlay for 12 weeks. Which you definitely should, if you think...
